PHE Empowerment Grants

The Healthy, Active School Programming stream provides financial support to schools for projects that initiate, enhance, and/or increase access to meaningful physical and health education programming and/or healthy school initiatives.

While the funds will be made out to the school, eligible applicants include teachers and school staff, school system administrators, and/or students (with a staff sponsor). With grants typically ranging from $500 to $2,500, funding opportunities include, but are not limited to, school projects and initiatives that support such topics as physical and health education programming, non-curricular physical activity programming, healthy eating, mental health, substance use awareness and prevention.

An application that aligns with all the criteria specified in the Application Guidelines significantly enhances your likelihood of being awarded a grant. We strongly encourage you to refer to the Application Guidelines before completing your application form.
